I was in Vermont all weekend for my annual women’s hockey tournament. I played against some great teams from Montreal, Boston, and New Brunswick. Our team did well with one loss, one tie and two wins! I also spent a lot of time shopping between games. I didn’t bring my camera with me and only had my old iPhone. I took this picture at the University of Vermont Gutterson Fieldhouse Rink. It’s the largest indoor arena in Vermont and it has a beautiful curved wooded roof. I took this picture of the Catamounts banner because there is a “paw” in their logo.
Stella had her first fly-ball class today. She was not too happy about being there. She wanted to hide under my chair the entire class. I couldn’t even distract her with a tennis ball. We’ll try again next week.
I love tomatoes this time of year. There’s nothing better than a bacon and tomato sandwich with a bit of mayo. Yum!
John’s hockey team won the playoffs last season. The celebration continued at a summer barbecue party.
I found these beautiful sunflowers on my bike ride home this evening. I took the photo using the 100Camera app in my iPhone. I also did some editing in Snapseed. I’m having fun with these different camera apps for the iPhone. The picture quality from this little device is pretty amazing.
I lived on the other side of these tracks growing up.
I thought I would try some of the iPhone apps that I’ve downloaded. I took this picture with the HDR app and did a bit of editing in Snapseed.
Stella came to work today. Her job was to get everyone to throw her ball and to make people happy. She brightened up the office on a Friday.
This is what our drive home from the cottage looked like. It was tough to leave the beach but at least it wasn’t a perfect beach kind of day. See you next summer Sauble Beach!
John and I checked out a new mountain biking park – Carrick Tract. It’s near Walkerton, Ontario. I found the trails challenging with lots of tight turns, steep ravines, and quick elevation changes.
On the way back to the cottage I took a pile of iPhone pictures of the beautiful farm fields. This area of Ontario has some stunning, healthy looking farms. For an outsider, who’s a city dweller, this area does not seem to be suffering the downward plight of the family farm. Most properties look well kept and tidy with nice trucks and farming equipment and healthy looking livestock.
